On a recent drive back to DC from Indiana, I made a detour through Pittsburgh. I love to stop and visit the city where I went to law school. During the visit, I snapped this picture of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law surrounded by a blanket of snow.
The Barco Law Library occupies the top three floors of the building. It is a Federal Depository Library like the Albright Memorial Library featured in Jeanine‘s recent blog post. I still remember one of the recruiting pitches was how the professors’ offices lined the outside of the library. I thought direct access to professors sounded terrific and didn’t really think at the time how that meant studying in an area without windows. They fixed this with a coffee shop in the library with a great view of the Cathedral of Learning.
